Flippy, if you join a site like photobucket you can upload all of your pictures at once. Then you just have to copy and paste the links for each one into your forum post.

Hey, Jim! You need to upload your photos to a photo hosting site and then paste links to the photos in your post. I use imageshack.us. If you're going to upload a bunch of photos, put them all together in the same folder on your computer. Make sure that they're correctly oriented (i.e., up is up).

Go to: http://imageshack.us/ On the imageshack.us web page in your browser, hit the [Browse] button and select the folder in your computer where the photo files are. Click on the first file, hold the <shift> key down on your keyboard and select the rest of the files. When they're all highlighted, hit the [Open] button, and the files will be selected and show up on the imageshack.us page in your browser. You can do up to 100 files at a time. Once they're selected, change the "Image resize:" setting from "800 x 600 (15-inch monitor)" to "640 x 480 (for message boards)" and change the "Label thumb:" setting from "Yes" to "No". Then, hit the [UPLOAD NOW] button.

When the files finish uploading, a new page will appear. On the lower right hand side of the page, a list of "Direct Links" will appear. Select the list and copy it by hitting the <ctrl> and <C> keys at the same time. Then, paste it into your report on CTFishTalk.com by selecting the place in the "Message body" window where you want them to go and hitting the <ctrl> and <V> keys at the same time. To get the photos to appear automatically in your post instead of the links, you have to select each link and hit the [img] button. Then, when you preview or post your report, the photos will automatically appear.

If this is too confusing for you, I could always post screen shots. Rolling Eyes

Yep, Photobucket is my choice and its great to do this if all your pics are on one drive. With Photobucket or other places similar all you need internet access to save all your pics there as a backup. Ive lost pics over the years from not backing it up somewhere like this or on a DVD.

I suggest as the above said upload the pictures on to a hosting site.

Make a new thread and post 5 pictures in each post in that same thread.

You can dooooet
